POLICY. price, automakers won't be a neutral player in the process, said Scott Frank, Airbiquity vice president of marketing. "We believe leading automakers w ill actually accelerate autonomous invest- ments to compete aggressively and miti- gate the risks of market share and revenue loss," he said. "Twelve months ago, it may have seemed like traditional automakers weren't moving fast enough to compete with disrupters like Tesla and Google, but the tide has clearly turned as evidenced by a slew of recent automaker announce- ments about autonomous related acqui- sitions, investments, and agreements. In addition, [they are] revealing autonomous technology development initiatives that have been happening behind the scenes for many years."

KVH's FOG for driverless cars KVH Industries offers a developer's kit that includes user interface software and all components needed to connect a KVG FOG or FOG-based inertial measurement unit (IMU) to a computer to confi gure, analyze and test the unit. Federal and local regulations also could impact autonomous vehicle sensor develop- ment, Frank said. "It's clear the development and deployment of autonomous technol- ogy is moving ahead of lawmakers' ability to draft and pass regulations pertaining to it, and this will increasingly impact the deployment speed for full autonomous ve- hicles as defined by SAE Level 5," he said. Paul Drysch, RideCell vice president, new mobility business, agrees that government regulations may hamper the technological development of autonomous vehicles, which may drive companies to find easier imple- mentation overseas. "You need city, county, state and federal laws to change. This will happen in a hodge-podge way, so I bet the first truly driverless vehicles will launch outside of the U.S.," he said.
